Calling All UK Wine Merchants – The Perfect Wine Gifts for Christmas

Christmas is not so far away, and your customers will not only be stocking up for the festive season but also looking to buy presents for their friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbours etc.

Many willing be buying bottles, but many will also be looking at other options, such as wine books. While there are plenty of these available, there are few aimed at that large section of the public who want to know a little rather than a LOT more about wine.

Which is where these two come in…

IDKM Front CoverI Don’t Know Much About Wine But I Know What I Like (RRP £8)

A full revised and updated edition of the 2004 Lanson Wine Book of the Year, with new illustrations from Manchester artist Steph Coathupe. “To get away with writing a book like this takes a writer who is able to simplify rather than dumb-down, and who has the nous to chop his way through the thicket of politics and reverence that surrounds the subject.” (Tom Cannavan,


Cover Med ResThe World’s Shortest Wine Book (RRP £5)

Described by The Independent as “just about the best introduction to wine available”, this is a book for those just getting into wine, and it’s just the right size to slot into a case without adding very much to either the weight or the price.
Both can easily be stacked next to a till to attract impulse purchases, and can also be slipped into a case of wine without adding much to the weight or the cost.

Click on the covers of each to find out more about each and to order your copies. For 10+ copies, you’ll receive a 33% discount, and for 20+, you’ll get 40% off. The discount will be added in the checkout process, and you can pay by BACS and PayPal. Or if you prefer me to invoice you, just send me an email saying how many copies you’d like, and where they and the invoice should be sent.

The books will be delivered within 14 days of your order.
